These little Beatrix Potter mysteries are so cute and I love reading them because they combine actual facts of Bea's life with stories that include talking animals. The villagers in the stories lead simple lives, but I've grown quite attached to the characters. The stories oftern include elements of mystery and fantasy, but this time, one of the main fantasy characters was a dragon. I wasn't crazy about the dragon and parts of the story dragged, mainly the parts that took place in the badger sett. I wish the story had focused more on Bea and the villagers and the resident animals rather than a bumbling dragon. I still enjoyed the story, but I'm looking forward to reading the next one in this series.
